Dying Matters Awareness

Dying Matters Awareness Week runs from the 8th – 14th May 2017

Dying Matters is now in its 8th year and helps to encourage members of the public to be proactive towards planning for the end of their lives by taking 5 steps.


  1. Write your Will
  2. Record your funeral wishes
  3. Plan your future care and support
  4. Consider registering as a organ donor
  5. Tell your loved ones your wishes


It helps to educate people on what they can do and where they can go to get support for their later life planning.

Number 1 is ‘write a Will’ and number 2 is to ‘Record your funeral wishes’, both of which are elements that we can help you with.

To find out more about Dying Matters Awareness Week, please visit www.dyingmatters.org or for further information on writing your Will and recording your funeral wishes either call us on 01782 255000 or visit your local Hanley Economic Building Society.


To help to promote this week we teamed up with The Will Writing Company and held a prize draw. If you were to attend an appointment at our branch with Brian from The Will Writing Company between 24 April – 3 June then you would be in with a chance of winning £100 worth of Marks and Spencer shopping vouchers.


The couple who won the prize are pictured below. Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Evans!
